Death of a grandparent is often a child’s first experience of someone important going away forever. Grandparents are the world for small children. Not only grandparents’ love knows no limits, but they also play a vital role in the children’s emotional wellbeing. Therefore, when they go away, the void becomes impossible to fill for a long time.
However, in their own innocent and beautiful ways, children are able to come to terms much better than most adults. The warmth of times shared together, imagining wonderful things about one who has gone away, support of family – all count in such times.
